The Bell Ceremony at Rickover Naval Academy is a tradition during which the seniors are "rung" off of the "ship" (school). This marks the last time they wear their uniforms until the actual graduation ceremony and it marks their academic time at Rickover complete. It is also a time for the younger cadets to honor the seniors and for the faculty and staff to have their time with the cadets, since graduation is really for the families.
